SPACE, T. Edward Bak, and CMU Comic Book Club

Monsters & Dames

S.P.A.C.E. was great this year. I have attended this show a half dozen times in the past ten years, and it's always been a favorite. But this year was the best one so far! New location, lots of great looking art, wonderful atmosphere. I had a good time. Thanks to Bob Corby (the show's organizer) and all of the people who participated and attended the event.

T. Edward Bak, one of my favorite cartoonists, is selling original drawings from his graphic novel-in-progress, Wild Man. It is currently being serialized in Fantagraphics anthology, MOME. You can learn more about this worthwhile work and fundraiser at his blog. Please check it out. At the very least, you'll get to see some exciting, new comics, and if they tickle your fancy, it's a chance to buy some beautiful artwork at ridiculously low prices.

TONIGHT - CMU has been doing monthly comics lectures. Bill Boichel (Copacetic Comics mastermind) will be talking tonight about Punk Culture and the Development of the Direct Market. Come out and learn comics stuff, people! Here's the info:
